2010 testing

Today teams will head into their last day of testing at the Jerez track, before everyone decamps and heads for a final four day test in Barcelona next week. Time is rapidly running out for all concerned.

Friday seemed to be red flag day in Jerez, with a total of six stoppages throughout the test causing all manner of delays. Kamui Kobayashi appeared to suffer more than most though, only managing 28 laps, Timo Glock faired little better with just 34. Notably Jarno Trulli will finally see some testing action as he settles into his green and yellow Lotus office.

On track action begins at 9am CET (8am GMT).
